How do you like the feel of low roll both front and rear? I am trying to get maximum steering especially low speed.

Yo Paulie...

In a pinch, would a carefully placed hinge-pin (taped in place, of course) serve as an ample belt tensioner?

Paul, Med grip CS27 spool,std level prosquat rear,std level kickup front, 4 degree caster,camber: -1fr,-1.5r ,25wt oil f/r, yellow springs f/r,1.4 sway bar rear,1.2 frt., all screws rear chassis, 2 left out in front. Alum. 2
degree hubs rear. This a friends car, as you can see I run Schumacher, but I did run Xray for a while, trying to get it to rotate/carry corner speed the way my Mi3 does. I have another setup posted on the Xray site from 06 that works better but just trying to get some input overall how to get the car or any car to rotate well.

Rkeasler: here is what i would try, it may be better.

If you have any inner pin angle, take it out, meaning anti dive or anti squait, I just was not sure about your post.

also i would go to a low front roll center (inner hinge pin), possibly with a higher rear roll center. this should help it turn. also I would put the Stiffer 17.5 white spring in the front, this could acually help the car turn.
let me know what you think and feel free to pm me if we are not on the same page, thanks

So basically no angle to the pins front or rear?
